What percentage of applicants are selected for interviews?
Answer: – A (2%)
Only 2% of candidates applying for a job make it to an interview, says Robert Meier, President of Job Market Experts. Studies have shown that only 25% of applicants are potentially qualified. Let’s put this in perspective. For every 100 applicants, you can immediately toss out 75 applicants leaving you with only 25 candidates. Of these, only two may be worthy of interviewing based on your hiring requirements. If you include assessments and other screening tools, the percentage may be reduced even further.
